Looking for handmade buttons? Check out these Stoneware Pottery Buttons!

I simply love these pottery buttons. They are handmade by Lynn whose shop’s name is MidnightCoilerĀ on Etsy. I just might grab these some day, when my creative thinking cap gets to work on new projects.

For now, I will be focusing on my upcoming fabric collage project, targeted to launch in the New Year. šŸ™‚

A customized order from Penang will take these adorable tote bags to 4 lucky little divas. Main fabrics are from the Michael Miller’s new Forest Life in Orchard/Purple and Watermelon, paired with coordinating fabrics to produce a 2-tone effect. Sewn insideĀ each tote isĀ a crayon slot that holds 6 average-sized crayons on one side, and a double pocket on the other.

What’s included – Each tote comes stocked with a coloring/sticker activity book andĀ 3 twistable crayons.

Dimension – Rectangular shaped, each tote measures approximately 10″ x 7″ X 1.5″

I can’t wait to hear about the grins and giggles from the kids! šŸ™‚

p/s Please excuse the lousy photography skills. I took this photo at 2+ in the morning, and was almost falling over as I tried to take a birds-eye view of the tote bags from above my son’s play table. Notice I didn’t even remove them from the plastic packaging?

Twins’ 6th Birthday

My gorgeous twin nieces…it was their 6th birthday last Friday. Happily carrying the bags I made for them, they wanted to have a picture taken with a “fairy” while we were at VivoCity Mall, Singapore.

Beatrice & Caitlynn on their 6th birthday

Beatrice is carrying a 2-tone rectangular tote with bright cheerful sun polkas (Pretty Birds by Pillow & Maxfield, Michael Miller Fabrics) with a chilli red water-drop pattern (One Bizillion BC by Sue Marsh, RJR Fabrics) to match. Caitlynn shows off her all-pink, also 2-toned, bag with a shopping fashionista pattern (Girl Stuff Hallmark in RoseĀ for Free Spirit) paired with an adorable dots in pink print (Crazy for Dots & Stripes, RJR Fabrics).

The twins’ had a birthday party in school, and each of their classmates had one of these bags too, all in various fabric designs and colors. Here are 2 :

Hedgehog in Cream, Michael Miller Fabrics single-tone, square bag for kids

David Walker’s Oh Boy – Animals All-over in White for Free Spirit rectangular bag for kids

These bags were made with reference to an original EmmiGrace Kids pattern, and has been modified to include an extra inner pocket to hold your little artist’s notes, art sketches and other little what-nots. I can also sew in slots to hold crayons (upon request) so your little one can have unlimited doodle fun on the go. This bag is large enough for you to fill with lots of goodies to keep them busy wherever you go. It also makes a good carry-all to hold a small water tumbler, thin cardigan and pocket tissues.

Interested to get one of these? Call me at 012-2869730 or drop me an email at makeminefabric@gmail.com and we can work from there. We love custom orders too, so if you have something in mind, or want a certain quantity of these, let me know!

Heather Bailey Bijoux Tiled Primrose in RED – only RM20 per meter!

I was at the craft shop yesterday (after crawling through a bad jam) to get some fusible batting, when this striking piece of fabric caught my eye. And it was on clearance – RM20 for a meter! What a steal!!

Heather Bailey Bijoux Tiled Primrose in RED

This 100% cotton, medium-weight quilt material would make a gorgeous lining fabric for any crafting or sewing project.

Package from India!

The burlap fabric I ordered arrived last week, just 2 days after I placed my order. It turned out the seller from the United States arranges for her suppliers to have them shipped out from India…which explains the much more affordable shipping costs.

Here they are..2 yards of them to get me started onĀ my new project.

For some curious friends who’s been asking what these potato sack materials are for….I’m just going to say the crafted end-result will look very nice on your walls. Stay tuned! šŸ˜‰
